I was given ssri's today,for the 4rth time in my life. The doctor said to me 'if you take these you cant stop because you dont feel better,you need to wait 6 weeks at least'.



So i took one this morning once i got home. And after about only 2 hours i feel ecstatic,food tastes better,music seems better,colours seem brighter. I just wondered if any of you guys have ever taken ssri's and how did you respond? My response surely isnt normal,all my worries just instantly went out the window and i dont know if i should discontinue it or stay on it? any reponses would be good because im feeling confused at the moment.

I would stay on it to see if you are gonna stay feeling this good
Sometimes our body chemistry and metabolism will make pills work different and maybe faster and or slower
It might also be the fact that you Want to feel better and so you do ya know what I mean
Really in my opinion I would stay on this med ..........
Keep us posted I have not heard you sound so positive since joining this" family"

I have taken them for many years without problems. They do take on average about 6 weeks to work. I would think that you feel so much better now because you want the med to work and it is more just in your head. That's just my opinion. Do not stop the med without talking to your doctor first and let them know if you have any side effects.

everyone reacts differently but i would stay on them and maybe take them just before bed

have positive thoughts because they will be a huge help if they work, some valium may help calm you if you become too entusiastic and moderate the alcahol over the holiday celebrations

I finally found 1 that worked for me and it helped with my stress and anxiety a lot yeah
